The discovery that 16th-century prophet and astrologer, Nostradamus could have accurately predicted the year of The Queen's death has blown some people's minds, as well as lent weight to another prediction about our new King Charles III – but is this a bunch of superstitious tripe?

According to a 2005 translation of Nostradmus' more than 6,000 collected prophecies 'Les Propheties', the supposed seer foresaw the Queen's death in the exact year it occurred – “Queen Elizabeth II will die, circa 2022, at the age of around ninety-six, five years short of her mother’s term of life.”

The accuracy of this near 500-year-old prediction shocked people around the world, and lent weight to the translation's other royal prediction that an unpopular King Charles would abdicate the throne, only to be followed by someone who "never expected to be King."

However, it should be noted, Nostradamus' thousands of prophecies and poems were written in Greek, Latin and an old form of French to escape a blasphemy conviction by the Catholic Church – making translations of the prophecies notoriously tricky and obtuse.

Indeed, seeing that a random bloke on Twitter was able to call the exact day of The Queen's death, perhaps all predictions are just a matter of chance. But, what do you think? Should we give any credence to these mad predictions? Let us know down below.

Or, do predictions like this show that there is more to our world, and some of our old writers, than meets the eye? Tell us what you think in the comment section.
